My story as an artist
Caroline was born in Aix en Provence on 16/11/1969. In 1989 she moved to Paris, then to Blois 11 years later, and finally to Tours in 2015.
Her fascination for photography began at the age of 14 when she received her first camera as a gift. From that moment on, in her brain, her career path was all mapped out, she would be a photographer. But life decided it otherwise as her studies led her to a Master's degree in Foreign Languages, to teaching and to executive management.
She will have to wait 40 years to realize her dream by becoming a professional photographer. In 2009, she decides to go back to school and consolidate her photographic culture and skills by passing a certificate of vocational training (CAP) and a diploma in photography (BTS).
Today, Caroline, Artist-author, is based in her gallery and her photostudio in the city center of Tours. She displays her art work and realizes portraits.
My work as an artist allows me to put in pictures my own inspirations through the great complexity of our urban environments. In modern architectural sceneries, I shape the light and use colors to express my feeling and transpose the energy of each place into a visual and pictorial force. I thus offer a new perception of this kind of pure mineral landscape by a clever combination of perspectives, geometry and of colors. A scenic game which brings strength and balance to my pictures.
I remind us that what surrounds us is deeper than what we think we perceive.
Through my chromatic and graphic approach of cityscapes that have turned enchanting and poetical thanks to my "digital manipulations", I explain the bridge I try to create between the true image and the virtual one that I reconstruct. Emotions are unseen and intimate, we feel them inside us. The same word - feelings - describes both physical and emotional sensations.
Through a very personal work of retouching, I modify an image to reflect the feeling, the thrill, the attraction, the energy that I experience for the place I photograph. This is how I suggest my pesonal vision of the pictured environment by translating it with my sensitiveness and a nice palette of emotions, like a painter in front of his canvas.
